October is Careers in Student Affairs Month
Ever wonder what it’s like to work in Student Affairs? Why people choose the field as their profession, and choose to stay there long term? What makes the field so appealing? The Division of Student Affairs can answer those questions and more next month.
Every October, UNM’s Division of Student Affairs joins the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA) in their Careers in Student Affairs Month celebration. This year, NASPA has themed the event Inclusion, Innovation, Impact.
